In North America alone, 37 million people are suffering from diabetes. Diabetes is a huge and growing problem, and its costs to the society are high and escalating. It is estimated that by 2035, 37.3% of the North American population will be suffering from diabetes. The majority of the 382 million people with diabetes are aged between 40 and 59, and 80% of these live in the low and middle-income countries.
Self-monitoring of blood glucose plays a significant role in diabetes management. The ill-effects of diabetes are seen not only in the increasing numbers of people with diabetes but also in the growing number of premature deaths due to it. In 2013, 65% of adults with diabetes aged over 18 years reported self-monitoring their blood glucose at least once a day. The average increase in glucose monitoring was 2.6% among persons aged 18-44 years. This, in turn, implies that glucose monitoring devices market will grow in the future.
